ac tripping breaker - new ac recommendations
I am an out of state accidental landlord and need some advice
on replacing/repairing the ac at my rental property in the
The property has two 2.5 ton trane units (2TTB00301000AA)
that are about 11 years old.
The tenant complained of no cooling in the upstairs and i had
a local tech go and check it out.
He first diagnosed it as a blown capacitor in the upstairs
unit and replaced it. When he tried restarting it, it tripped the breaker again and again. Now, the diagnosis is bad compressor and here are the options
Replace compressor - $2200
Replace unit with Lennox 13ACX-030-230 - $3600
Do u think the diagnosis is correct ? Any chance the compressor can be repaired ? Should i get a second opinion ?
If i need to replace, is there a better value (reliability)
model/brand for a rental property ?
Is $3600 a good price in that area ?
